    Living in Finland, helping Helsinki University doctors write articles for medical research journals, I so wish that their findings could have helped dear Meade. Joe is my favorite first cousin, along with his dear family. My husband Jyrki and I send them all and Mary Helen our deepest condolences. Wonderfully generous hospitality was only one virtue of the Lambs. Otan osa = I take part in your sorrow.

    Joe and Family,
    Eventhough we all did not want to let her go, I think the closing words of a Tennyson poem was so applicable to Meade’s life.

    And may there be no sadness of farewell When I embark;
    For tho’ from out our bourne of time and place
    the flood may bear me far,
    I hope to see my Pilot face to face
    when I have crost the bar.”
    Craig and Dot

    I was deeply saddened by the passing of Mrs. Lamb. I have many fond memories of the coutless hours spent at the Lamb household. It was always non-stop activity. However, Mrs. Lamb could keep us in line, never with a harsh word. She will be missed.
